The best 4wd vehicle ever built
Water pump at 110,000 miles.
AC compressor at 145,000 miles.
Transmission overdrive solenoid at 137,000 miles.
I purchased this vehicle with 98000 miles, living in Lake Tahoe, Ca., where it snows up to the windshield.
Every winter morning, with temperatures sometimes below 0, my Jeep started within seconds... every single time.
By the way, if you bought the 4.0 straight 6, (like mine) they never die. The 2.8 ltr GM engine is JUNK.
Replacing a water pump, and other minor things I considered to be normal maintenance, especially with over 100,000 miles on it.
I plowed through snow like I drove an arctic ice breaker.
I pulled countless Isuzu Rodeo's, Toyota 4 runners, & Chevy Blazers, all good snow vehicles, but in my opinion not nearly as good as my Jeep Cherokee.
The car never failed me, in over 85000 miles.
It is one of the most dependable vehicles I have ever owned in my life. It home safely during many snow drifts, & white outs. I grew attached to this vehicle, as my workhorse, that just never quit.
I finally traded the Jeep in with 186000 miles on it, and had tears in my eyes as I walked away.
I still own a Jeep Cherokee, (97) for the snow. There is 115,000 miles on it, so it's still new. :)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
